First Time Trying CBD Oil For Chronic Pain

– This is my very first
shipment of CBD oil.
(upbeat music)
Good morning y’all, rough morning.
I honestly was not planning
to pick up the camera
until I was feeling a little better,
but something adorable happened.
Harlow, while you are adorable,
I’m actually not talking about you.
I managed to make it downstairs,
and I found this from Judd.
This is gorgeous.
Got a sailboat, a pink sunset, wow.
This is so touching, it says,
the card says, with you,
life is an adventure,
happy Valentine’s Day.
And he wrote the sweetest most amazing…
I’m not going to share what he
wrote because it was personal,
but you know this is
not typically like Judd,
the romantic gesture,
so I know he put a lot
of thought into this and,
I’ve got a great man.
Alright I have made it to my destination.
I need the heating pad, I
need my nausea to go down.
I will see yaall in a bit.
Hey, Harlow, you want to be snuggled,
and your nose is like right in my armpit.
Well y’all I am feeling a bit better.
Harlow actually slept on our
bed all night last night.
Usually she’ll get up after awhile
Cause she gets too hot,
but I woke up and she was happily
laying between Judd and I.
She was actually kind of invading
Judd’s space and like pushing him,
so that Judd starting
coming into my space.
But we made it work.
Anyways I’ve got a
physical therapy session
and the PT should be here any minute now.
And then I’m going to
try something new today.
Alright, I had my physical
therapy, it went well.
The first thing he asked me is,
“Do you have your AFO’s yet?”
And I said no, but my appointment,
I’m not sure if I told y’all yet,
is Friday to get my AFO’s
and my joint braces from Hanger Clinic.
So, looking forward to that.
Anyways as a Valentine’s Day treat,
I am making Judd some pulled pork,
one of his favorite things.
The last time I tried to make pulled pork,
it went not so great.
I cooked it on high instead of low,
so the pork really didn’t shred well,
but I think this one’s
ready to be shredded.
Oh, my goodness, yes, it’s
shredding beautifully.
Okay, so the secret is to
cook it on low for six hours
instead of high for three hours, ta-dah!
Alrighty, so I shredded it up,
I put some of this sauce in it,
and I actually have a
recipe to share with yaall
Cause I was like if I mess this up again,
I want to blame it on a recipe.
So I put a link to it in the description,
and then I added some Sticky
Fingers Carolina Sweet,
and I think he’s going to love it.
Alrighty y’all, I said I
was trying something new,
and here it is.
This is my very first shipment of CBD oil.
So I’ve been talking with my
doctors about my chronic pain,
and we are always looking for new ways
to improve my quality of life,
and to help me manage my pain,
and it had been suggested
to me to try CBD oil.
And if you want to learn about
my pain management plans
and past discussions of this,
I would check out my
pain management playlist.
So originally, I was
opposed to trying CBD oil
because I was worried it
would lower my blood pressure,
and I already have problems with that.
I have to take medications
to keep my blood pressure up,
but I think that was just me
not knowing much about CBD oil.
Some people, it doesn’t do anything to BP,
some people it goes up, down.
We don’t know exactly how
it’s going to affect me,
but I talked to my pain
management doctor about it,
and he thinks it’s at least
a try cause many people
have had a lot of success with CBD oil,
and if it helps me, how
wonderful would that be,
especially since it is natural.
Now I did a fair amount
of research on CBD oil
before deciding to do it,
and before deciding which company
I was going to purchase from,
and one of the first
things I learned is that
many people have very strong opinions
on which company is the
best to purchase from.
And what I think will be
true in this instance,
is that every brand can
affect everyone differently,
and you really need to do a little bit
of trial and error to see
what works best for you.
So the company I decided to go with first
is one that a fellow EDS blogger uses,
her name is Christina Dougherty,
and this company is called Theramu.
And if it works well for her,
I felt confident in giving it a try
to see if it works well for me.
Now CBD oil may do nothing for me,
I know a lot of people
have success with it,
but I have spoken with some people
who said it really didn’t do much.
Or it did very little that it
just wasn’t worth the cost.
So I am moving forward with
this, cautiously optimistic.
I really, really want it to work,
but I’m not going to get my
hopes unrealistically high.
I like my saying of cautious optimism.
If this one really doesn’t
do anything for me,
like I said, different brands
may affect you differently,
so I will probably try
at least one more time
with a different brand.
I was looking at Lazarus
or Bluebird Botanicals,
those look good because they
have third-party testing
on their products, but anyways,
this is what I have right now.
So this is…
It just came in this box, this
doesn’t fit in our mailbox
so they delivered it
to the leasing office.
It was fine, it came with my receipt,
and this pretty stuff that looks like,
I don’t know hamsters would use it,
or like birds for nests, whatever.
Packaging I guess and
it came with this box.
Now it’s open because I
did try it last night,
I put a drop on my skin first
because, you know me, I’m
prone to allergic reactions,
and after awhile, nothing
happened with the drop on my skin,
so I put one drop under
my tongue and went to bed,
and I was totally fine.
I wanted to try it first last night
because, well, that’s when it came in,
but also Judd was home,
today he’s working.
And so you open it up,
and here is the oil.
It was facing the right
way when I first opened it.
And I got the Theramu Calm Pro.
Which I think just means
it’s a higher strength
than their original.
And it is mango flavor,
and 100% pure hemp extracts.
Sublingual dietary supplement.
750 milligrams pure hemp extract.
And this is one ounce.
Supplemental facts, serving
per container, about 120.
Serving size is five drops.
So I get one drop under my tongue.
The dose would be five.
Other ingredients, pure Emu oil,
organic mango extract, it’s gluten free.
Directions say shake well before use
as pure ingredients naturally separate.
Place five drops under
the tongue subliminally.
Up to three times a day
or as recommended by your
healthcare practitioner.
Hold under tongue for 20
seconds before swallowing.
Store at room temperature.
Does not contain THC.
So yes, I’m using CBD oil,
there’s no THC component
which is the component
that makes people stoned.
And this is legal in all 50 states.
If you want to know about
prices for this specifically,
just check out their website,
I’ll link it in the description.
That’s kind of what I worry
about, it being cost-prohibitive
Because it is kind of pricey,
and depending on how much
I need it, but we’ll see.
I don’t even know if it’s going to work yet
and some people say it has
to get into your system,
so it takes awhile to
start seeing affects,
or it works right away.
I didn’t notice any difference
yesterday from my one drop,
but, oh I forgot to shake it.
So we’re going to shake it up.
Alright, I got my drops.
I’m going to like open my mouth and use this
while y’all are watching me okay.
So here we go.
And then I leave it under my
tongue for like 20 seconds.
You really can’t taste anything,
it doesn’t really taste
like anything to me.
Maybe, like a hint of mango, but…
Has it been 20 seconds yet?
Okay, I left it for like 30 seconds
Cause I wanted to be safe.
But there we go, we shall
see how it affects me.
No difference yet. (laughs)
But I will keep y’all updated
on my journey with CBD oil,
I am really, really hoping and praying
it will be a good resource
for me, but time will tell.
Hi, yaall, I’ve made it into bed.
I honestly do not feel a
difference with the CBD oil.
However, my pulse is giving
me lots of issues tonight.
Generally my heart rate is 110, 120, 130,
so still tachycardic, yes
my pulse gives me issues,
but it looks like my baseline.
Not tonight, I am up in the 160’s
and Harlow alerted to me twice today,
one syncope I was able to prevent,
by laying down and elevating my feet,
the other one I couldn’t even prevent it,
so, I mean I’m okay.
Harlow alerted, I was in a safe place,
but (sighs) my pulse is bad tonight.
And it started to get worse like two hours
after I took the CBD oil,
but I don’t feel the CBD
oil is making my pulse worse
because I was having issues
with it this morning.
And just the nature of the beast I guess.
With the CBD oil, I talked to Judd,
and kind of our game plan,
is that I’m going to finish
the bottle from Theramu.
The current bottle I have,
I’m going to take five drops
in the morning and five drops at night.
I watched the video.
I edited the volume a little bit,
and I think I put way more
than five drops in my mouth.
It’s kind of hard to tell, but anyways,
I’m going to take it in
the morning and at night
until the bottle finishes.
If I don’t see any difference with it,
then I will try another brand
and I’ve decided I’ll
try Lazarus Naturals.
And you know I want to
really give it a good try,
I’m really hoping it can help me.
Also, if y’all have
been watching the news,
I’m sure you know that something
really tragic happened in Florida.
There was a shooting at a high school
and it happened in Parkland,
which is several hours South from here,
but, gosh, it’s hard to
know exactly what to say
when these things happen.
It’s heartbreaking and
we feel it, I’m sure,
all through Florida and
through this nation,
and my prayers are with everyone affected.
Snuggling Harlow close to me tonight.
She’s also very attached to me
because I’m not feeling
well with my pulse.
I’m actually going to be running
an extra liter tonight
to hopefully help with it
so when I wake up tomorrow
I’m hopefully not struggling as much.
Anyways, I’m going to bed,
so with that I’ll say goodnight,
and thanks for joining
us on our adventure.
